    Damn, anyone know if they got this cam phaser issue worked out for the 2020's. Mine is only 3 weeks old, I certainly don't look forward to this issue popping up.
    Thanks

    F-150's received the new phaser design in 07/18, Expedition/Navigator received the new design in 04/19 (vehicle build dates). You're fine unless you have a random part failure.

    Just had my 2018 (39K) in last week for the cam phasers and they also found my left bank valve cover was cracked. Tech did a fresh oil change for me on the way out with no extra charge!

    Very grateful for how quick and easy it was for them to do this big repair, it even feels more responsive now.

    My 2019 with 8k miles has the cam phaser problem. Waiting on parts which are supposedly back ordered to fix it.
